How to use World War I in a sentence?

  1. Lisel Hintz:

    The border World War I refers to -- the Turkish-Syria border -- was established in 1923 with the Treaty of Lausanne and the founding of the Republic of Turkey. The exception to this is the province of Hatay, which passed from Syrian to Turkish control following a referendum.

  2. Henry Stimson:

    We must never forget, that under modern conditions of life, science, and technology. All war has been greatly brutalized, and that no one who joins in it, even in self-defense, can escape becoming also in a measure brutalized. Modern war cannot be limited in its destructive method and the inevitable debasement of all participants… A fair scrutiny of the last two World Wars makes clear the steady intensification of the weapons and methods employed by both, the aggressors and the victors. In order to defeat the Japanese aggression, we were forced, as Admiral Nimitz has stated, to employ a technique of unrestricted warfare, not unlike that which 25 years ago was the proximate cause of our entry into World War I. In the use of strategic air power the Allies took the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Germany and Japan…. We as well as our enemies have contributed to the proof that the central moral problem is war and not its methods, and that a continuance of war will in all probability end with the destruction of our civilization.

  3. Eugene Deibler:

    How many people remember the Civil War? How many people will remember World War I? And now its the same with World War II, world War II will fade away also.

  4. James Mattis:

    The intent was to stop the cycle of violence into an area that even in World War II chemical weapons were not used on battlefields, even in the Korean War, they were not used on battlefields. Since World War I, there has been an international convention on this and to stand idly by when the convention is violated -- that is what we had to take action on recently in our own vital interest.

  5. Arthur Herman:

    The U.S. really emerged as a superpower at the end of World War I, president [Woodrow] Wilson gave the U.S. a moral authority it never quite lost.
